Sometimes movement and sports performance suffer if your core is weak, or if you have poor movement coordination or balance. Our Pilates is taught by physiotherapists. We focus on safety, building strength for each person’s sport’s needs, and optimizing performance. We use Matwork, Reformer, and/or Tower programming to keep each session fun, challenging, and moving you towards your goals. So you can move well and perform with confidence.
Pilates services we offer:
Pilates Reformer Private Class
Pilates Matwork Private Class
Pilates Tower Private Class
Pilates SpineFitter Private Class
We only provide one-on-one Pilates classes at Hyde Park Physiotherapy. The focus of each session is on building a strong movement foundation, and tailoring sessions to your movement – or sport performance! – needs.
We typically use a variety of equipment and apparatus in each session – this is often dictated by your unique goals. But Pilates is fun too! And to keep it enjoyable, we keep your preferences in mind too…working with you to achieve movement success.

What is Pilates?
Pilates is a system of movement originally designed to rehab dancers and boost their performance. It works systematically building up awareness and control, especially through the core and torso. Then it adds controlled movement through different movement sections of your body.
Pilates encourages functional use of your full core – including breathing and the diaphragm – in movement. The progressions help to reinforce healthy movement patterns in your brain.
You learn how to keep one part of your body stable while another moves around it, to fluidly move through straight and spiral movements. And then how to integrate full movement patterns together, moving with strength and control through a functional chain of body segments.
